Abandoned Home, The Berkshires, Massachusetts-2011




Howdy! Nights are cooler. Days are shorter. Fall is just around the corner. Some trees are changing color already in the Midwestern part of the U.S.A. Autumn is my favorite season of all. I'm ready!




Glad you visited. Meanwhile keep smiling. Life is what it is. See you next week.

Pink Saturday - August 27, 2011


If you would like to participate or view more Pink items click on logo above. Thank you Beverly for being our hostess.

This is one of those shots which needs to be in the delete pile; but I have been told to save all my images. So I worked on this photograph in a program called Picassa. I thought and thought and thought some more until it came to me, the lake water needed more movement. I changed the background to purple, to green I used several colors until I thought mmmmm black makes the Pink color pop. Then I got goofy and wanted to see through the water as if it was parchment paper. Tah, dah! Remember this is my first attempt at doing this kind of work. Five years from now, I will probably be saying "What was I thinking?" rofl

Today is a full schedule. Plan on doing most of these things on my list but who knows?
Wash the kitchen floor.
Do errands.
Read email.
Check out what was posted for Pink Saturday on other blogs.
Go on a photography shoot--the list is a mile long of images that I saw and wanted to go back too. Depends on lighting for this goal.
Pray that our Eastern Seaboard friends will be safe.

I am glad you dropped by to visit. Meanwhile, take care. Time for me to go make breakfast and start the day. I hope to see you next week.

Yeppers, the drought is over. This year, we have been having a lot of rain, a lot of humidity and a lot of sunny hot days. Flowers are blooming, our grass is being cut more often and the woods are a deeper green.






Glad you visited. I hope you will stop by often. Meanwhile, you take care now.

Thank you, Norm for adding color to our firepit. Our grandchildren's eyes just lite up when they saw this happening. Then it was how did you do that? Norm told them, "It is an Uncle's secret."











This orange and yellow lily grows near our firepit. I was extremely lucky to capture raindrops on the petals.






Thanks a heap for stopping by. Hope you will come again.

Thinking Outside the Box - Stove Gauge


Stove Gauge, Gene's Used Furniture and Antiques, Gene Hause, Prop., W14337 Hwy. 8, Weyerhauser, WI 54895.

Took a photograph of an antique stove gauge. Then added a fire background to make image look hotter than hot temperature wise. My favorite part of this photo is the round shape. FYI: Start an image with what you like then work from that.

Thinking Outside the Box - Lock and Chain


Photo: Lock and Chain
Credit: Joyce Meyer

I took a shot of this lock and chain which was blocking off road usage in Hubbard Park, Meriden, CT. Image was average showing road, grass, weeds, tree forest and metal. All these textures got my juices flowing. I thought. And I thought. And kept thinking like Pooh Bear. I wanted this particular shot to look like someone was welding. Viola, here it is.
